  2. Stackable Bangles (summer 2014 trend) - Bangles are the quintessential jewelry item of summer. When you purchase a set of bangles, you can rock all of them on your arms without looking overdone. Well that is if you keep it to no more than between five and eight per arm.
  3. Chunky Chokers (summer 2014 trend) - Chokers are the perfect jewelry item to show off a little skin. This is especially true when the choker is a bit loose, lying at the base of the neck instead of encircling the middle of it like collar chokers do. Use them to add a stylish edge or color to your summer outfits.
  4. Chunky Stretch Bracelets - Adorning the wrist is always an easy accessory to pull off. Easy to put on and take off bracelets, like stretch bracelets, are always popular for summer. The chunky varieties are very fashionable for the season and carry a lot more style than they have in the past.
